We are looking for an experienced programmer of music and non-music artistic events to work across Village Underground (720 cap) and EartH’s three rooms (1200, 750 and 300 cap). They will be tasked with developing globally renowned programmes with a focus on redressing the balance of representation and diversity in our sector.
We expect candidates to be able to demonstrate their understanding of issues of equity, representation and diversity and to discuss ideas and concrete actions they would work on to incorporate these issues into our work.
We are looking for a team player with demonstrable negotiating and financial skills, who will cooperate with the rest of the organisation to strike the right balance between artistic, social and commercial priorities.
Growth – Create and implement a strategic plan to increase the number of music and arts events from 300 to 700 per year across both venues. This will include developing a programme and content strategy for EartH Kitchen (300 cap), and working with the Club programmer on weekend events and club nights at EartH Hall (1200 cap).
Artistic policies – Develop the venues’ artistic policies with the Club Programmer, the MD and the rest of the team. Introducing the policies to promoters and other stakeholders, getting them on board with any changes the policies will bring.
Diversity and representation – Incorporate these issues into the programmes, artistic policies and strategic plans. Be forward-looking and modern, thinking beyond outdated definitions of ‘quality’.
Financial sustainability and beyond – Strike the right balance between artistic, social and commercial priorities. Seek new income-generating opportunities to exceed targets, and ways to re-invest this income into the artistic programmes.
Systems – Develop, implement and manage improved calendar management systems at EartH.
